What regulations govern returning to the office as we enter the 'beyond' phase
As organizations around the world adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, employers in many jurisdictions have started preparing for the "beyond" phase. Unlike ever before, key reputational, strategic and human resources questions must be answered about whether the organization can ask all, some or certain employees to resume working from the office or official business premises, either partially or in full.
Collected and consolidated by our labor law professionals in more than 60 jurisdictions, EY's COVID-19 Return to office: Legal requirements and considerations tracker, captures answers to questions regarding the existing legal framework for returning to the office, enforceability of employment contract obligations, statutory limitations, employees' rights and obligations, as well as other relevant employment law considerations. It is designed to support organizations in their decision-making at this critical time.
